The Montreux 228 SC Jackplate Relic is the ideal input jackplate to help recreate the vintage/roadworn look of a well used instrument The Jackplate has partially sanded and corroded to give an accurate aged look without over doing it.
I have been asked many times 'Why not just do it yourself?' Yes, it's a relatively easy mod to do, but its actually more cost effective to mail order this part rather than buying supplies to do it myself.
In summary, I'm happy with the Jackplate. It works and is a subtle but cool addition that a little more character to my guitar.
